The Pittsford Little League, Inc. (PLL) was founded in 1953 and operates as a volunteer-based organization chartered through Little League International. We are located in Pittsford, NY and offer Baseball, Softball and Challenger programs for children between the ages of 4 and 16 years old. Our Challenger baseball division is an adaptive program that enables kids who have mental and physical disabilities to play the game.
The league is a registered 503c(b) organization and all of our activities are funded through participant registration fees, corporate sponsorships, grants, and private donations.
Despite the Western NY weather, the league offers programs 12-months per year. Through our umbrella organization “Pittsford Community Baseball & Softball” PLL participants have the opportunity to also participate in the Pittsford Panthers travel program.
At its core, the PLL experience for players is about establishing lifelong memories, a sense of pride in your hometown, where friends and classmates play with and against each other for good-natured bragging rights. We encourage children of all abilities and skill levels to play in the PLL; we believe “if you want to play you can play”. There are no cuts and equal play is mandated. Through the game, players learn life lessons in leadership, perseverance, discipline, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
Since inception, two PLL players have gone on to play Major League baseball – simply put, we’re very proud of them and equally proud that almost all of our players go on to do great things in something other than baseball.
